CONGREGATION SHAAREY ZEDEK MISSION


Congregation Shaarey Zedek is a warm, welcoming, inclusive and
egalitarian Conservative Jewish community. We provide to all generations
innovative, stimulating and diverse spiritual, educational, leadership
and social opportunities that nurture our love and commitment to
Jewish life, our Synagogue, our country and the State of Israel.
Our spiritual direction is led by committed, knowledgeable and caring
clergy available to all.
Together, all participate in celebrating our history, enriching our
community and planning our future.

CONGREGATION SHAAREY ZEDEK HISTORY


In 1861, at the beginning of the Civil War, seventeen followers of
Traditional Judaism withdrew from the Beth El Society in Detroit to found
the Shaarey Zedek Society. In 1877 the membership constructed the
first building in Detroit to be erected specifically as a synagogue at
Congress and St. Antoine. Over the years, Congregation Shaarey Zedek
has been located in a number of beautiful and picturesque buildings.
These include Winder between St. Antoine and Beaubien Streets, Willis
Street E and Brush, and Chicago Boulevard and Lawton which is still
standing. At the 100th annual meeting of the Congregation on April 12,
1961, more than 700 members approved the recommendation from the
Board of Directors that a new synagogue be built on a forty acre site in
Southfield Township.
Since the 19th century, members of our congregation have proudly
played leading roles in Michigan, the nation and throughout world
Jewry. For more than 150 years, Congregation Shaarey Zedek has been a
house of prayer, a house of learning, and a community gathering place,
transmitting Conservative Jewish teaching, dor ldor, from generation to
generation.

HEALTH, SAFETY, AND OTHER INFORMATION


In case of emergency, there is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
located in the alcove near the entrance to the Mens Restroom in the
main foyer of the Synagogue.
Oxygen is available, if needed, in the rear of the Sanctuary and in the
Clergy Robing Room.
Wheelchairs are available and are located in the coat room.
Large print prayer books are located in the rear of the Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary is equipped with a hearing loop which broadcasts sound
without background noise or reverberation. If your hearing aid has a
built-in wireless receiver called a T-coil or Telecoil, you may access the
T-coil program by pushing a button on your hearing aid. Speak with
your audiologist to find out if your hearing aid has, or can have, a T
(no background noise pick-up) or an MT program (blended micro-phone
& T-coil program) for improved hearing in our Sanctuary. If your hearing
aid is not T-coil enabled, hand-held hearing devices are available and
located in the rear of the Sanctuary.
Lost items may be located in the coat room. If you dont find your
lost item there, please contact the Synagogue office. Please note: the
Synagogue is not responsible for personal belongings.
Please notify an usher if you need assistance.
If you have any questions about health & safety equipment in the CSZ
building, please contact Keith Armbruster at 248.357.5544.
VISITING THE SICK
Due to privacy rules, hospitals cannot inform the Synagogue when Jewish
patients are admitted. The only way we know that you, a relative, or friend
is in the hospital is if we are notified by loved ones. Please contact Elise at
248.357.5544 or egechter@shaareyzedek.org when you know of one of our
members who is in the hospital, so our clergy can be in touch with them.
HELP MAKE A MINYAN
Coming to daily morning and/or evening services may fit perfectly into
your day. Your attendance IS important, even if you are only able to
attend periodically. Fellow congregants who are reciting kaddish for a
recently departed loved one, or a yearly yahrzeit, rely on CSZ for their
communal support. Please join us and make a difference.
MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION
For membership information, please contact Shelley Golsky
at 248.357.5544 or sgolsky@shaareyzedek.org.
